Nendo has taken its collection of chairs based on Japanese manga comics to New York, where they are on show as part of a light installation at Friedman Benda gallery (+ movie).

The Japanese studio’s 50 Manga Chairs are each based on the abstract lines and grids used in graphics for the comic books.

They were first presented by Friedman Benda in Milan, where they were installed in the courtyard of a historic cloister during the city’s design week in April.

Based in the heart of the Chelsea art district, the gallery is now showcasing the collection in a dedicated space where projections play across the walls.

“This installation of 50 Manga Chairs is the result of adapting the strong symbolic nature of manga comics to furniture design,” said Nendo. “The original animation for this exhibition is also projected on the wall of the gallery.”
